The Moderna Museet podcast on how to rehang a collection

In 2019, Moderna Museet is rearranging The Collection, and the art will change in 19 rooms. But how do you choose which of the Museum’s 140,000 works to show? And what is it like to be the one who decides that an internationally famous work should be taken down and put in storage? In this podcast, Jo Widoff, curator of The Collection of international art, tells us how to reinstall a collection.

In the eighth episode of the Moderna Museet podcast, Kristin Lundell, press officer at Moderna Museet talks to Jo Widoff about The Collection. Also: can the Museum acquire art spontaneously, and is the compulsion to adjust crooked paintings on the wall every time you visit a restaurant an occupational injury?

Moderna Museet will publish ten episodes of the podcast in spring 2019. Opening music: “Walk on By” by Perro Del Mar. The podcast is in Swedish.
